    What's gone on in this thread, jeez. The icon thread used to be a nice place to come and talk about icons, now it seems like everyone is complaining about something.

    Constructive criticism has always been one of the first rules in the icon thread...really, in any thread/forum when people's work is on display. Honestly, no one expects to post their work and be told it's "awful" or "terrible", especially without any advice on how to improve; suggesting a new icon isn't really substantial advice. If things keep up like this, it'll be a sad day for icons. If someone's work isn't up to snuff or isn't "out-of-this-world amazingly fantastical", then try and encourage better techniques; if you don't know any improved techniques...then I think it's best the comments are kept to yourself.

    As for the Christmas icons still being up, it's not an act of treason; we're going through a shift in management so things are bound to lag a bit...even seventeen plus days. I really don't see that as a need to constantly post your grievances...as with anything else, I'd suggest you take it to a Moderator/Admin if you feel you must be heard.

    How do you not see the incredible irony in that?

    The point remains, however.

    Yes, my point was made quite well, I think.

    Thanks to those of you who have posted your thoughts (especially those of you who repeated my desire for patience until DV gets back). However, I'd like the thread to move forward until I get the goods and start the new one.

    So - is anyone interested in turning Jolee into an icon?

    I am, and I have a Juhani icon on my icon page as well that I's like to see up.

    Go for it :D

    By the way, the LACWAC, Lit, and EUC mods are going to help me plug in some holes we have with material from recent releases :)

    Also, I now have the power to remove icons (but not add them). Just to let you all know, tonight I removed:

    -the football (minus the two teams currently there and the generic one)
    -the Winter Holiday icons
    -the NaNoWriMo icons (since that's over)

    A few new icons

    I know you can't add them yet, but Wedge and the two Sith Kenobis are my first submissions to plug the holes.

    I still can't upload icons (I know you're all really happy) but does anyone have any new Valentine's Day icons they'd like to see up?

    Regarding The Clone Wars icons / Avatar. I just had time - but I was wondering, are these okay? They're 50x50

    These are great!! Thank you so much! And we'd love more :)

    I also have some from Garth for TCW that he says aren't there are all, so I'm going to upload them as soon as I can :)

    I asked people to stop asking about when I can upload - especially since I just said a couple of days ago that I can't.

    I've uploaded a few smoochy EU/comics icons:


    Starkiller/Galen Marek and Juno Eclipse: http://fan-files.com/jc/data/500/thumbs/TFN_starkillerjuno.jpg

    Cade Skywalker and Deliah Blue: http://fan-files.com/jc/data/500/thumbs/TFN_cadedeliah.jpg

    Zayne Carrick and Jarael: http://fan-files.com/jc/data/500/thumbs/TFN_zaynejarael.jpg

    Cade Skywalker and Darth Talon: http://fan-files.com/jc/data/500/thumbs/TFN_cadetalon.jpg


    (All but the last one (Cade/Talon) could actually be general EU icons, too, not just for V-Day if you want to put them up for vote later. [face_peace])

    Valentines Day icons are starting to go up (who knew we have 25 candy heart ones?). All the ones that we currently have should go up tonight.

    And I think Grimby can teach me to upload new icons, which will be a weekend project (especially some of the new TCW ones). When I'm positive I can, I'll start a new thread :)


    Thanks, Trace!

    Tunick, your color of choice is red, which is a VDay color, so suck it up and put on a mushy icon :p

    Sorry, Rex, no personal icons allowed.
